THE ETERNAL ONES by Kirsten Miller

THE ETERNAL ONES

Age Range: 12 & up

KIRKUS REVIEW

Haven Moore can’t wait to graduate and escape her small Tennessee hometown—and her repressive grandmother. But she is plagued by strange seizures that confuse her with images of clandestine embraces with a mysteriously familiar man named Ethan. When the fits prompt her grandmother to cancel Haven’s first semester at fashion school, the rebellious and inquisitive girl heads for New York, where she encounters both Iain Morrow, the sexy celebrity in whose body Ethan’s soul now resides, and the Ouroboros Society, a shadowy organization dedicated to the study of reincarnation. As Haven tries to understand her visions, she finds herself mired in a battle between good and evil, but she can’t be sure of the real villain. The questions surrounding Iain/Ethan’s motives—is he a liar, cheater and/or murderer?—nearly undermine the romantic tension, and the slightly-too-long story sags in the middle. But Miller is adept at humorous description (Haven’s grandmother has “the pinched nose and the perfect posture of a meerkat”), and her keen eye for detail and Haven’s bold maneuvers keep the tale humming along. (Paranormal romance. 12 & up)
